Michael Jackson's children to star in own reality TV show?

Michael Jackson may have tried to keep the lives of his children strictly under wraps when he was alive, but that could be all about to change - because the trio have been tipped to star in their own reality show.

The phrase 'turning in his grave' comes to mind.

According to The New York post, the series would follow the lives of Prince Michael, 16, Paris, 15 and 10-year-old Blanket (yes BLANKET)as they go about their daily business - and is the brainchild of Jacko's sister La Toya.

As you can probably imagine, the possible programme has excited television networks - who are said to be locked in a bidding war to secure the rights for the show.

In fact, bidding for the series is already rumoured to have reached a whopping $10 million (£6.5 million) with Oprah Winfrey's OWN network currently leading.

What a world we live in, eh?

A source supposedly close to the Jackson family has revealed that it's La Toya who is spearheading the project, after getting the seal of approval from the kids legal guardian and grandmother Katherine.

"Toya's working it. It's because [Katherine] can't say no to her," the insider said.

"She told them how she knew [Michael] better than anybody else, and she knew he'd want them to follow their dreams; and because they were his children, they could be media and entertainment moguls. 

"She had a blueprint. She sold it, and they bought it."

Oh, just FYI - alll three children are also signed to La Toya's Ja-Tail Enterprises talent agency, meaning that she will receive 15% commission of any deal they strike. HMMM.

It won't be Prince Michael's first media job though - he's already a guest correspondent for Entertainment Tonight AND is set to make his acting debut in 90210 when the new series airs this year.
